48. The operation of a contaminated soil burial site is subject to the provision, by the operator or by a third party on the operator’s behalf, of security intended to ensure, during the operation and on closure, the discharge of the obligations that the operator must meet under the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) and this Regulation.
The Minister may use the security referred to in the first paragraph where the operator fails or refuses to discharge the obligations that he must meet. The security may also be used where the operator becomes bankrupt or, if the operator is a legal person, in the case of winding-up of the legal person.
The amount of the security shall correspond to $2 per metric ton according to the authorized maximum contaminated soil burial capacity.
